5.0

My best friend!

I recommend this car very much for harsh conditions such as hard rain, snow, etc. And does pretty good in both commuting and having fun, it has its own car issues as any other car but still is very reliable.

4.0

It is still fun and reliable

Great beautiful reliable fun. I will keep forever. It does not need to be turbo to be great. Best investment ever. The most beautiful they ever made. And it is so much fun to drive. I simply love it even today.

5.0

Most fun and best car I’ve owned so far

I bought my 2006 WRX with only 35k on the odometer and with the body in great shape. The power output for the small size is very fun. It’s fun during sunny days and you don’t feel like it’ll lose grip during rainy days. 10/10 would recommend.
